Star Ornaments


Hi, when my boys were young I made a heap of these stars with them to decorate our christmas tree. They did the colouring with the kindy glitz. Back then I used a lot of chipboard from the backs of notepads and any dark card scraps I could get hold of. We needed to make quite a lot!

 I thought I'd make some new ones and enter the challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. The theme is to create a christmas ornament for the tree or wall.

I'm also linking up to Holly Jolly Christmas challenge where there's a challenge and a blog hop. The theme is anything goes christmas card or project. 

For each ornament I stamped four stars in silver Versacolor and used super fine silver embossing powder. I used  kindy glitz to colour them then taped some silver cord between the inside 2 stars. Finally, glued the outside 2 stars on. They look great on the tree with the christmas lights making them sparkle.

I popped a couple of brads into this sheet of black card to hang the ornaments on. If I was organized and had my tree up I could've photographed them there! It's on the list  for this weekend.

Materials used: PSX stamp, the date on it says 1992!! silver ink and ep; kindy glitz; glue and silver cord from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

These are stunning, Cathy! The paper backdrop is perfect for them, so we can really see the detail. I'm so taken with them. They look like expensive hand-forged metalwork!! A winning project I'm sure!! Hugs, Darnell

Absolutely gorgeous Cathy! I'd absolutely buy these for my tree!
Our tree doesn't go up until the 11th. 2 weeks before Christmas is the very earliest I'll allow. anything before that just means I want to pull the thing back down again before the big day! lol. Thank you for joining in at Crafting with Dragonflies.
